Well I didn't get the preschool going and now it looks like I will be moving. Dad lost his job a few weeks ago and so we are looking at moving back to Emery County, Utah. I hope that once we get settled I can look into doing preschool there. I will look for a place to do it and then hopefully start early enrollment in January. I will let you know what happens.

In the meantime you can check out pictures of the classroom that I would have had this year by going to the Facebook page; www.f...

New dates for beginning preschool

Posted by ferleegardner on September 12, 2012 at 10:55 AM Comments comments (0)

Okay, so yesterday was supposed to be the first day of class. Since I still have no guaranteed students, I have decided to push back the opening until October. I will hold an Open House on October 1 from 9am til 3pm. Class will begin on October 2.

I am going to take pictures and video of the classroom and post them here and on the Facebook page. Things are really cute and I have lots of fun stuff. I have many great ideas for the year and really want to be able to use them.

Running out of time and ideas

Posted by ferleegardner on August 29, 2012 at 6:40 PM Comments comments (0)

I am planning on holding an open house for preschool next Wednesday. I am starting to get worried because I still have no students. My visiting teacher and I have hung flyers and posters around the area. Several friends have posted my link to the Facebook page on their walls. I have put ads online and have been talking to people and trying to get word out by word of mouth. I don't know what else to do!

Thanks to the wonderful people in the neighborhood, I have many new toys and books. I...

Toy drive

So this past weekend a young woman from my ward did a toy drive as one of her Personal Progress goals. She collected toys and books and even some supplies to help me get this preschool started. I am amazed at all the stuff I got.

I just want to thank all the people who donated. I especiall want to thank JEssica Call for doing the toy drive.

I am holding open registration next Tue-Thu from 1:30-4pm. I am posting signs and flyers so that hopefully I can get some kids signed up fas...

Getting desperate

Posted by ferleegardner on August 16, 2012 at 12:15 AM Comments comments (0)

So, bad news! I lost my job a week ago. I didn't really like the job but it was helping to pay the bills. It took 4 1/2 months to find that job I don't want to wait another four months to find another one. That is why I am starting to get desperate about filling my preshool.

My Relief Society president's daughter is going to help me collect toys and books for one of her Personal Progress goals. She has also volunteered to pass out flyers. My visiting teacher is also willing to help pass...

I am going to hold an open enrollment/registration for the next few weeks to try and get some students signed up. I will hold it on Tuesday-Thursday from 1:30pm-4:00pm. I will post signs and welcome anybody to stop by the house and sign up.

I am tired of my current job as a custodian. I have been having problems with my neck and arm and it is hard to do the job. Also, the past two days I have gotten overheated as we worked outside raking dead grass. I just want to teach and I am getting...

August Special

Posted by ferleegardner on August 1, 2012 at 5:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Okay, I am starting to get a little worried! School starts in just over a month and I still have no students. So I have decided that anybody who likes my facebook page and enrolls their child will get $10 off of September's tuition. That means the payment for September would be $75 instead of $85.

In the meantime, Dad and I went to D.I. yesterday and found a bookshelf, easel, and some children's chairs and books. I paid $25 for the shelves, easel, 6 books, and 5 chairs. I also got a Sit...

Frustrated and excited!

Posted by ferleegardner on July 28, 2012 at 11:15 AM Comments comments (0)

So, I have the name for my preschool and I have a list from the fire marshal saying what I need to pass inspection but I still have no students. Apparently I missed a call yesterday from someone interested, but I couldn't understand the message. Thus the title for this entry.

Other than the fact that I have no students, everything seems to be falling into place. I have been getting supplies here and there for good deals at the local stores and D.I. I have also pretty much decided what w...

It is official! The new name for the school is Miss Jen's Li'l Sprouts Preschool. Next step is fire inspection and business license. Hopefully the house will pass inspection. Now I just need students.

I have a lot of fun activities planned for the year. We will be learning about lots of stuff from apples to zoo animals! I can't wait to get going.

Okay, so it is starting to become a reality. I have the info about how to get licensed. I just have to register the preschool name and get an inspection from the fire marshall. There is probably some work to do in the yard and a few other things, but I'm on the way.

So now I need to fill the classes. I am hoping to have 2 sessions with at least 8 children in each. The classes will be held 3 days a week for 2.5 hours each. Please help me out by spreading the word. I am soooooo excited to...
